Make a person’s life anywhere in the world a bit better, one International Rotary Project at a time, while making friends globally.

Our mission - “Come for lunch and stay on to change the world” – our Past-President Chuck Page (2018-2019)

Over the last few years, this committee has fostered collaborations with other Rotary clubs all over the world. Projects range from a water tank in Brazil, toilet for girls in Arusha, Tanzania, clean water and toilets in about 20 schools in Bangalore, India. It is our responsibility to leave the world a better place than we found it, and nothing makes me prouder than saying that the Rotary Club of Saratoga is playing a vital role in this regard.

Through the NID (National Immunization) trip to Nigeria and West Africa project fair in Port Harcourt, we learned about the needs of the kids in Ugbolu, Nigeria that was being led by the Rotary Club of Central Asaba, Nigeria. The Primary School kids in Ugbolu School in Nigeria are very appreciative of the joint efforts of the all the clubs (Rotary clubs of Los Altos, North Stockton, Shasta, Burney-Fall, Dunsmuir, Sunnyvale (Sunrise), and Campbell) that contributed to bring it to fruition.

In 2018-2019, we put our funds to good use to help communities across the world.

We worked with the Rotary Club of Palo Alto to provide clean water to 22 Schools on the Island of Koh Samui, Thailand.

We helped an orphanage with special needs kids in Guadalajara, Mexico.

In 2019-2020, we are finalizing a Global Grant project for special needs children in Okpanam, Nigeria.

We would love to hear from all of you, please bring in your suggestions and ideas for projects as you go touring around the world. The committee meets monthly to review ongoing projects and evaluate project proposals.

While doing the projects, you make friends with service oriented like-minded individuals all over the world!
